As the cinematic run for Uncharted nears its conclusion, PlayStation Productions has to be happy with its first effort. According to The Numbers, the film has pulled around $339 million in ticket sales worldwide, making it the fifth highest grossing video game movie of all time. It’s unlikely to catch the likes of Warcraft or Detective Pikachu, but it could yet creep past The Angry Birds Movie, which sits at around $352 million.
Sony Pictures recently indicated that the adaptation represented the beginning of a “new hit movie franchise” for the firm, but a sequel has yet to be announced – even though a post-credits scene appears to set one up. The organisation is also working on other big screen adaptations of PlayStation properties, including Ghost of Tsushima.
